welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a newborn and family photographer based in Washington Dc. I find it an absolute honor to photograph you with your little ones. I adore baby toes and that unforgettable newborn smell. 

Meet sweet, little Faye. I was so excited when her mother told me her name. It’s the name of my own mother and I so rarely hear it anymore. She was the most calm baby I have ever photographed. She wore her mother’s christening gown and it was intricately smocked with beautiful detail. Big sister […]

Zack and Ashleigh just welcomed their second baby girl into the world, and she is as perfect at they come! I met them on a warm fall morning at Green Spring Gardens. It’s a delightful spot with gardens, a pond and historic house. It’s a great option to walk around as a family especially when […]

The Duncan family welcomed their second boy into their hearts and home and we are thrilled for them. William Rogers is simply perfect. I love session where Grandparents can be part of the moments.

Welcoming William |DC Newborn Photographer

There is nothing like a new baby. The smell and tiny grunts. The siblings getting to know the newest family member. The proud looks on the parents as they interact together, getting to know what a new normal is. Little Grant was welcomed with all the love possible. With two big sisters, he will get […]

Washington, DC Newborn Photographer | Welcoming Grant

It amazes me how you can go from a family of 3 one day and a family of 4 the next and quickly forget how life was before the new baby. The Strahorn family was very excited to welcome baby Smith into the world. He was pretty much perfection. With big eyes and so calm. […]

Welcoming Everett | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

I adore at-home sessions for so many reasons. The most important one is for the comfort of the parents. Daniel’s parents were no exception. They just came through several days with the flu bug, on top of being new parents with all the adjustments and not getting much sleep. They said if they couldn’t do […]

Welcoming Daniel -Washington DC Newborn Photographer

Twins are wonderful. Exhausting. Delightful. And work, a lot of work. I thought of it several times during their newborn session how busy their mother was. But in all the busy and mundane tasks, how grateful she was for her full arms… and even fuller heart. There’s just nothing like a brand new baby and […]

Nadia and Nicole -Twin Newborn Session

Have you ever done something and afterwards felt, “I was made to do this?!” That’s how I felt after photographing my first birth. Honestly, I want to photograph 100 more.  The day was cold and sunny as I drove to the hospital. I felt excitement and butterflies as I checked into the Labor and Delivery; […]

The Birth Story of Daniel | DC Birth Photographer

I adore watching toddlers interact with their new sibling. Each child is different, some pretend they aren’t there, others want to love on their new baby, and some get a little too rough as they inspect the newest member of the family. Kassi did so well with her baby brother Kaden, and Kaden; well, he […]
